    I worked at Northwestern Mutual as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Performance based means strong income potential. $100/week stipend for attending an intern meeting on Friday afternoons. Forces you out of your comfort zone. Gives you a great idea of what the full-time position entails.

    Cons

    NWM does not give sales leads, they expect you to leverage your own family and friends to sell their products. If you do not stay with the company after your internship your time was essentially a marketing tool, delivering the company leads and clients (family and friends) for full-time agents to keep. Expected to constantly prospect, make 40+ phone calls, and keep at least three meetings per day. Sink or swim environment.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Freedom with schedule, pay is very rewarding if you are successful. You also get to help people with their finances.

    Cons

    You sell mostly life insurance and sometimes it may not be the best fit for them. It is hard to be successful because people dont want to meet with life insurance sales man and although thats not what you are, you do come off as one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better training for new hires.
